German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock announced an additional contribution of €11.5 million to the Ukraine-NATO Trust Fund.
The German Foreign Ministry announced this on the X social network.
"The Ukraine-NATO Council will be the driving force that will bring Ukraine closer to NATO. Alliance standards, planning of forces and assets, and the reform of the armed forces are central to this process. Germany is making an additional contribution of 11.5 million euros to the Ukraine-NATO Trust Fund," Baerbock noted.
At the same time, the diplomat pointed out that the public's attention to Russia's war against Ukraine has decreased and emphasized that "this is a shame."
